Wednesday 10th
Oliver's brace against Ipswich meant he had scored 4 goals in 3 games for the second time this season, the only player to do so. His games per goal rate would reach 17 goals come the end of the season and his 12 goals averaged 1 every 241.6 minutes. Prolific Tom Eaves hit 1 every 185.1 minutes.

Thursday 11th
There has been 8 braces scored this season (Samuel 2, Oliver 2, Akinde 2, Graham and Lee) matching the 8 games in the 2016/17 season where a player scored 2 or more goals (2 were hat-tricks). The 3 seasons inbetween saw 5, 4 (all by Tom Eaves) and 6.

Friday 12th
Fleetwood's 2nd minute winner was the earliest since a 3rd minute winner in the 2016/17 season. The earliest winning goal conceded by the Gills in the last 8 seasons was:
8th minute, 6th, 8th, 3rd, 9th, 3rd, 5th and 12th.
